There are a number of good family dog breeds. First you need to see the amount of time and space you can give it and then see if the breed matches your needs. Also read other articles on this website regarding buying a pup etc.

It also depends on how you bring up the dog and train it. Labs are very nice friendly dogs but do require space and exercise. I have seen labs kept locked up in apartments and then have turn aggressive. What I mean is do research on the breed requirement and if you can give/ offer it all that plus its a 10+ yr commitment.

If you are a first time dog owner then may be you should get a small breed.

Some Popular Family Dog Breeds are:

1. Pug
2. English Cocker Spaniel
3. Beagle
4 Labradors
5. Golden Retreiver
6. Dachund

Just to add to what Dinker has mentioned. Though pugs are popular, there're not atall suitable for Indian climate. This is becoz they have short nose so they tend to have breathing problem in hot conditions. If you can spend time in gromming then only you should go for Cockers. Beagle don't have health issues and can thrive well in Indian climate, but they have habbit of hauling and their bark can be a problem and they have habbit of chasing the smell they've noticed.
Dachund are not easily trainable. Unless you can spend hours in training, they might become a problem.

My strong suggestion is to go for GSD, Lab or Spitz. All these are best in Indian conditions. They are all easily trainable. GSD, requires little more training than the other two but a well trained alsation is the best. Lab have a great abilty to learn quickly. But they might not be as good guard dog as the alsations. Spitz are the most comman breed here. They are easily trainable require less space and can do well in families which don't have time to take their dogs out for walk.
The bottom line is start training right from the day you bring your puppy in.

You need to do a lifestyle match with which ever breed you think you like. A Boxer is a dog for an active person. They require a lot of exercise. twice a day run is nice for them, otherwise they will be jumping around the house. Apart from that they are great dogs and good with family. I have a 10 plus yr old boxer.
